Facebook a annoncé la fermeture prochaine de son application mobile d’agrégation d’actualité Paper. Lancé en janvier 2014, ce service avait pour vocation d’être une alternative à l’application principale du réseau social. Un outil offrant uniquement la possibilité de trouver et trier des articles plutôt que vous les actualités de vos amis.

Uniquement disponible sur iOS, l’application affiche désormais qu’elle ne sera plus administrée à partir du 29 juillet. Voici le message que les utilisateurs ont découvert :
« Thank you for using Paper

In 2014 we launched Paper, a standalone app designed to give people a new way to explore and share stories from friends and the sources they care about. Today we’re announcing that we are ending support for the app and users will no longer be able to log into the app after July 29.

We know that Paper really resonated with you–the people who used it–so we’ve tried to take the best aspects of it and incorporate them into the main Facebook app. For example, the same team that built Paper also built Instant Articles—a fast and interactive experience for reading articles in News Feed—using many of the same tools, design elements, and fundamental ideas as Paper. Our goal with Paper was to explore new immersive, interactive design elements for reading and interacting with content on Facebook, and we learned how important these elements are in giving people an engaging experience.

We know not all the features you love will move over to Facebook, but we hope you’ll continue to notice elements from Paper improving the Facebook experience for everyone. We can’t thank you enough for using the app and exploring Paper with us over the past couple of years.

-The Paper team »

Si vous utilisiez Paper, il est temps de revenir sur Facebook et de vous reconnecter avec vos amis et les marques que vous suivez.
